Meet Me @ The Old Fire Station
The Old Fire Station (TOFS) was set-up from 2014 and opened in 2017 as a community resource with Gipton Fire Station Community Enterprise as the landlord. The Meet Me At The Old Fire Station (MMATOFS) initiative is aimed at building on this development to achieve a shared vision and realise the full potential of a locally, welcoming, community hub, working with local people to address local challenges. MMATOFS is partnership between Space2, Zest and The Old Fire Station.
The aim of the MMATOFS initiative was for local people visiting TOFS to be able to benefit more and move seamlessly across the varied opportunities the hub presented. This included volunteering, befriending, skills development and social networking, removing the hurdles between agencies that had previously existed.
